The park has around 68 genera and 96 species of plants and trees. More than 6000 plants and trees have made Cubbon Park their home.

I have visited this park many times. I was a regular visitor to the library inside the park during my college days and later on while I was seeking employment. I have meditated many times sitting on benches under the trees and walked for long durations here.
